You cannot do this - ISA is 32-bit only, runs on Windows 2003 - 32-bit and cannot be installed on Windows server 2008 which is 64-bit.

if you can install hyper-v and use a Windows 2003 32-bit hyper-v guest then that is your only option or install a windows server 32-bit server.

ISA 2006 cannot be installed on windows 2008 even 32 bits version of it.

I think Keith was talking about 2008 R2 which is only 64bits but ISA 2006 can only be installed on windows 2003 32 bits.

you will need the new ISA called TMG that can only run on 64 bits machines

well sorry i offended it was just more polite than writing you are saying something wrong.

2008 has a 32 bits version 2008 R2 doesn't and i'm sure you know that you simply wrote something different

you cannot. As I mentioned in my first post - ISA 2008 is not a supportable operating system for ISA Server. ISA requires windows 2003 - 32 bit.
Therefore it is impossible to install ISA on Windows Server 2008 , I suggest to create  Virtual Machine after installing Hyper-V(you can find it as Role like DHCP and DNS ) , and then install Windows Server 2003 and then ISA.

That is the only way to do it , all sustem administrators are using Virtualization nowadays , it is hot topic in fact.

We have it running on Server 2003 hyper-v machine under 2008r2.
